In an interview with the Bulgarian National Radio, she explained that this procedure is in line with European rules and that Bulgaria's goal is to keep a key position on Europe's gas map.

"The market test was conducted and 100 percent of the input and output capacity of the pipeline has been acquired," the minister said.

After a successful market test, Bulgarian company Bulgartransgaz made a final decision on January 31 to invest in the TurkStream project, which will transport Russian gas from the Bulgarian border with Turkey, to Serbia.
